    Here is the rest of the post to you, cut me off at 1000 characters

    I think I will talk with Bob at Dieselorings.com and get a complete package put together. New hoses, seals and o-rings and other items to be sure I cover everything. Do you happen to have a full list of parts needed for the fuel bowl, fuel pump and turbo removal and reinstall? Guess you could say I'm trying to save a bunch of time getting it all together.

    Thanks again for everything, so far! Hahaha

    Thanks for all of the info. The banjo bolt lines for the 97 49 state truck runs $126.45 where the 94-96 is $75.01. The Calif part must be more than the $126 cost. Yuck. Being that the truck is 18+ years old and only 62k miles, I guess it would be happy having some new parts. When I do all of this, I am planning on pulling the fuel bowl out and giving it a good cleaning and a full rebuild seal kit. Have you had the fuel bowl out? Watched a youtube video and it doesn't seem too bad, and remove the fuel pump all at the same time. I've heard that you don't pull out the pump too quickly. Wait until you loosen the bolts a bunch, or take them out, and then rotate the engine by hand (wrench) until the pump lifts up. I guess having the pump plunger fall into the engine would really suck!

    Part 2: My message was too long! Since I also have the parts, I may also replace the up-pipe donuts, and the rear fuel line seals at each head. DieselORings has good pricing , good service (I've gotten a bunch of my seals and such from them and I'll probably get the pump there too), and has all the various parts/pieces. Cheers again!

    Hi Glen! I've never replaced the pump on my 97 Cali yet, but I need to. I did it numerous times on my old 94. The 97 Cali's have the same pump, but the fuel line/banjo assembly is longer on our trucks. It also has the disk-shaped pulse damper attached to it. The banjo bolt is way at the back and I don't see how you can remove the banjo bolt with the turbo in the way. I've read where some guys say that it can be done without removing the turbo, but I can't see it. Maybe some sort of special wrench can be fabricated (I haven't looked that hard yet). My plan was to remove the turbo, which is a pain-in-the-neck. When I do mine, I plan to replace the pump, the damper and it's seal, the banjo washers, the turbo pedestal O-rings (both turbo-to-pedestal and block-to-pedestal), turbo collector-to-turbo gasket. Cheers!

    bugman sent me your way. I may be needing to change the fuel pump on my 1997 F350. It happens to be a Calif truck. bug said you would be the one to ask about the differences between changing a 49 state and a Calif truck. Any tips would be appreciated. Also, where would you suggest getting a fuel pump? Have heard the dieselorings.com site has very good pricing and have all of the hoses and seals needed. When you have a few minutes, let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

    Wondering if you could shoot me an e-mail with your $12 AIC write up. Thanks,

    There are a few different versions of this mod floating around out there. If you would like me to send you a writeup and diagram on the version I used, PM me your email address. Cheers!

    Just read your sig and saw "$12 AIC". Are there any write-ups on this? Maybe you could point me in the right direction. Thanks

    The only thing I can find is the range of build dates listed in the TSB. If your truck's build date falls in that range there's a good chance your's is one of them. Cheers!

    Hey Patrick, I have been surfing this website for awhile. i have a 96 7.3 and having some issues with a coolant leak above my oil cooler. I can get a mirror up above it and it looks like it may have a crack in the block. Looks like you have some knowledge about this from some of the posts I have read. Is there anyway of finding out if my block my fall into one that had this issue? Thanks for any help, George.
